Fairview Gardens

fvg_1030_logotractorStep back in time! The Center for Urban Agriculture at Fairview Gardens is a non-profit educational facility situated on a 100-year-old working organic farm. It is located in the heart of Goleta’s ‘good land’, just 10 minutes North of Santa Barbara, California. The non-profit preserves and operates this organic working farm with the intent of educating the community about how a sustainable world for future generations is possible, where knowing the source of food and being connected to nature is common knowledge and practice. Your rental of Fairview Gardens for your private event helps fund their mission of building connections between community, food and nature!

On this 12 acre urban farm,  fruit trees, gardens, meandering pathways, roaming chickens and beautiful mountain views create a unique atmosphere. You will have a chance to envelop yourself in the lush green leaves and the low hanging branches of the farm’s towering ‘Sister Mulberry Tree’.  The farm’s seed house can quickly transform into a cozy gathering space for evening events. And, the front yard of the historic farm house that rests on the property offers a rustic and picturesque setting for larger events. Outdoor pizza ovens provide a festive and convenient way to prepare food and feed guests!
